I don't think frac is intended for this.

Re: Chaining Context: Ligatures following numerals

Thanks to a very helpful answer by our very own Erwin, not here but on the Type Draweres forum :? I found out what I was doing wrong with the Chaining Context and fixed it. The new version also works well with the Fractions feature and does both the English ordinals st , nd , rd , th and the spanis...

Re: OpenType Features: Order of Precedence

Would this work if both frac and ordn are activated:

Re: OpenType Features: Order of Precedence

I am still trying to understand what Mike means by "a run of text." OpenType layout features are processed per "run of text". This means text is divided into smaller segments. Each new line will cause such split, but also a switch between Scripts, e.g. if Latin and Hebrew text i...

Re: OpenType Features: Order of Precedence

I think we're getting way too ambitious here. I don't think we need 13 chaining contexts, or an equation editor. A fraction feature that can cope with 123/456 or (1+2)/(abc-xyz) without conflicting with Ordinals would already be quite impressive. Fair enough, but I'm still wondering what to do with...

Re: OpenType Features: Order of Precedence

If you write this with Equation Editor in Microsoft Word 1st = 2x + 1/3y - (34/456)z and 2nd = 0 or 4x^3 It looks like : equationeditor.png So I think ultimately OpenType features should make it look like: equationopentype.png On the other hand, the Fractions feature is only meant for fractions, not...

This is indeed a bug. It will be fixed with the next upcoming release.

Re: OpenType Features: Order of Precedence

I'm sure we can get both to work for the basics, but what about more complex formulas, or even just something like:

1st = 2x + 1/3y - (34/456)z and 2nd = 0

Re: Variables to Generate Glyph maps

I'm sure some users would love such feature, but there are numerous other enhancements that will benefit way more users.

Re: Kerning not working in Word preview

I don't think the font selection combo boxes kern text, so I shouldn't worry about this.

Re: OpenType Features: Order of Precedence

It looks promising, but (123/345) doesn't seem to work correctly if ordn is active as well.

Re: Startup updates never end

When I launch Main type it runs a scan which never ends as it crashes at some stage and loses communication with the proxy. I have to manually stop and restart the font service and then wait for the startup processing scan again, which invariable crashes again and round and round until I decide to ...

Re: [FIXED] FC11 64-bit: Minor bugs/problems after upgrading

Grabbed the new update, the change to the automatic contour direction works perfectly and the bug is indeed solved, which is awesome - thank you very much. I'm glad it solved the issue. I've made one more minor change, and I'm curious if this is a improvement or not. Can you install and try this re...
